    We build the best, and layoffs aren't likely anytime soon. It is fun to work on the leading edge.

    A few bad political apples here too. Very important to find a supportive manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a gym on campus please.

    Pros

    Being a part of the production of the most innovative and top of the line aviation.

    Cons

    Long hours are included, the pay is hourly so this could be a positive or negative thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management rarely communicates with the assembly crew. I urge them to better network with the guys on the floor which will help the company grow in culture.

    Office space. Office cubicles in Savannah, the BTC, are not conducive for productivity. Too many cubes are open and multiple voices overlap each other. No phone privacy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ptrovide 21st century working environment. Enclosed cubicles.

    Pros

    Great company with decent benefits. Lots of opportunities for career growth. The location and is great and the company is in a growth and expansion period.

    Cons

    Lack of promoting individual employee personal growth and engagement, clear assignment of responsibilities and holding individuals accountable for results. Processes and procedures are not clearly defined or unnecessarily complex. Routine procedures and tasks involve too many personnel and are inefficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish clear process and procedures for routine activities. Lots of opportunities for process improvement and organization. Provide employees the resources, give clear directions and hold individuals accountable for results. Management is not on the same page, too many layers of lower - middle managers. Too many initiatives. Lack of clear strategy or priorities.

    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people, great atmosphere, challenging work if you earn it. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Gulfstream and would happily work for the company again. The atmosphere at the workplace was happy and open, and my managers were very supportive and good at providing challenging and rewarding tasks. This in turn helped me to develop both personally and professionally. A good work/life balance is also encouraged.

    Cons

    Corporate bureaucracy challenges. It is difficult to get much done with some of the outdated processes in place and the internal structure in the company. There are of course ways to get things done anyway, but a lot of time can easily be wasted on administrative tasks when it could easily be spent elsewhere. Communication and collaboration between the departments could be improved. In addition I didn't find Savannah the most interesting place to live

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I joined Gulfstream for a summer internship. I was out of state so I was offered corporate housing in a GREAT place by the company for the entire duration of the internship. The internship experience was also awesome. It started slow with practice and tutorials but once I learned some of the design tools used by the company, I started real work. I did pretty much the same work that other entry level engineers did, and so I am proud to say that my designs are actually used on the production aircraft. The work environment was super fun and super supportive. People were super laidback, and welcoming. I looked forward to work everyday. The internship was an IDEAL internship that any intern would expect to get. I would love to go back to this company at this site.

    Cons

    I couldn't find any during my 3 months working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
